After all that's been discussed this week, it is nice to see that the Nintendofiles think im a Sony fanboy

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

Why is no one allowed to give an opinion about a game anymore without being a fanboy? You are allowed to disagree and have your own opinion.

This excerpt from the CAGcast was pretty much asking for it since I did not agree with anything Wombat or Cheapy said

I picked up Geist when it was $5 and played it straight through in a weekend. It was fun but not mind blowing.
Exactly. Geist was supposed to be this huge FPS game on the Cube and bla bla bla it was going to be awesome. Then people played it and no one cared. Conduit could be cool, who knows. Those comments though sound like they need to take the Nintendo dick out of their ass.

One good comment out of all the angry comments on the article:
Jet Pilot Says:
Before the fanboy rage begins…
These comments are just one guy’s opinion. Who cares if he doesn’t like it.

1. Take one small quote completely out of context and harp on it endlessly: In this case, it's the Killzone 2/Halo 3 comment. Wombat's point in that statement was simply pointing out the obvious challenge that The Conduit faces for attracting multi-console owners. No game exists in a vacuum, and for people who own the Wii as one of their consoles, The Conduit is competing with the FPSes on those consoles. If someone owns or is trying to decide whether or not to get Halo 3/Killzone 2, why should they consider The Conduit? All three stress online play, all three feature you blasting aliens with a variety of weapons, but Halo 3/Killzone 2 have a markedly better visual and aural presentation.
It's easy to fall back on the "Point & Motion control advantage" argument, but even that can be a pretty weak argument nowadays for the Conduit, as MP3 and Medal of Honor Heroes 2 both already have exceptional First-Person controls (And dual analog can still have some advantages). Other games coming out, like MadWorld and HotD: Overkill don't face this problem, as MadWorld presents a unique visual style* and Overkill has a presentation that have not been done on the other consoles (Plus their gameplay genres are pretty scarce on other consoles nowadays); they will not face the direct competition challenge, unlike a good FPS (Except for MP3), which are a dime-a-dozen on other consoles.
2. The Personal Insults: Yawn.
3. Other: Admittedly, they may have raised a good point in the auto-center feature to fight the "crazy movement" problem that I believe was known in Red Steel. However, whose fault was it in this case? If the auto-center is an option that can be enabled/disabled, Wombat experienced the crazy movement problem, and the Sega rep nearby (From what I know of these shows, someone is always watching players like a hawk at these public demo booths) was silent about the feature, then I would assign blame to Sega, who should have mentioned "Hey, this option will stop that." If Wombat did not actually experience crazy movement during his time with the game and was just inferring that it might be a problem due to his past experience with Red Steel, then Wombat was at fault for not asking his interviewee "What is going to be done about this problem?"

Don't worry. These guys are obviously nuts for Nintendo, even after all of the terrible things that Nintendo has done to their own reputation. To listen to other podcasts just to comment about what a single person says about a game is just wrong/weird/dumb.

What's the guy expecting? Gears 2? It's a Wii game. Wombat's probably right. And Conduit=Geist. I call it now. The same thing is going to happen.
I think you're on to something there. Potentially a very good comparison.

Don't worry Wombat, we stand by your side. And don't feel bad about saying the Wii is _(input 'crappy' console adjective here)_, the console is USELESS for games. But, I guess you have to give those immature fan boys credit, they are defending their console's only (possibly) decent FPS game.

If they don't like it, tough. FPS are the one game where graphics do matter, and Wii just can't compare with the 360 and PS3.
Plus, the controls on the Wii with a FPS take a while to get used to, so it's only natural someone would complain when first playing the game.
My favorite comment:
"He got up on his soapbox again, and says he doesn’t want to support this game due to the fact the developers wouldn’t let him use his audio interview because they had a woman translator, and didn’t want a female’s voice to represent them. I mean come on, could you try any harder to find a reason to hate a Wii game? To boycott a game just because the Japanese developer doesn’t want a womans voice to do this translation is absurd. He wouldn’t of bought the game anyway!"
Refusing to support a chauvinistic company that wastes your time! HOW DARE YOU WOMBAT!!!!!!!
That guy completely misses the point.
